Marking Profession Achievements

Monday, October 13th, 2008

In an effort to keep their professions relevant both Knifey and Sapphire manage to train their first aid skill up to the old skill cap of 300, and a bit of work sees them both reach skill level 300 with cooking as well. On top of that, Sapphire is able to create enough rings and […]

Separated at Birth?

Sunday, October 12th, 2008

Does someone have access to the barber shop before it is open? Even so, what's he doing with my face? And my ram? I need a lie down.

Knifey's Brewfest Adventure

Tuesday, September 23rd, 2008

When Knifey was working his way towards getting a ram, and avoiding the mechanostrider as much as possible, Melmoth helpfully pointed out that the popular Brewfest in October offers a swift ram mount that can be gained by repeating some daily quests for a week. Brewfest didn't come around quickly enough before Knifey reached 60 […]

Sap Considered Harmful

Tuesday, September 16th, 2008

Knifey and friends head up to Caer Darrow to visit the Scholomance, worried that the occupants are probably going a little stir-crazy with no one coming to visit. If anything could enliven an otherwise normal day of summoning undead it would be a visit by armoured heroes with pointy weapons and freezing spells. We have […]

Sapphire Skills Up

Wednesday, August 27th, 2008

Having spent so much time trying to make the Night Elf faction happy I became fatigued with all that Azeroth had to offer. I had heard many tales from both Faust and Tiger about their adventures, and then young Knifey headed out in to the world to stab anything in sight. By the time I […]

Knifey Enters the Battlegrounds

Monday, August 25th, 2008

Sapphire told me of her recent attempts to push back the Horde in Arathi Basin, picking up a tabard commemorating the Spirit of Competition for her efforts. With her being a protection-based warrior and me a blade-wielding stealthy rogue, I thought I'd be better able to do my bit against the Horde threat in battlegrounds. […]

Knifey in Shattrath

Tuesday, July 29th, 2008

Knifey has been hanging around with all the cool Netherwing Drake-riding kids in Shattrath City, having moved on from Azeroth through the Dark Portal. I've been using the Scryer's inn as a resting place for now, mostly because the jump from the Scryer tier down to the upper city whilst painful can be survived. It's […]

Knifey's Midsummer Madness

Wednesday, July 2nd, 2008

Midsummer celebrations comes to Azeroth, and Knifey finds bonfires and fire jugglers everywhere he goes. Interested in why people are throwing fire everywhere I ask the fire juggler in Ironforge what is going on, and he offers to give me some flowers if I manage to throw some of my own fire around. I light […]

Knifey's Lockpicking Discovery

Tuesday, June 17th, 2008

Keys are for honest people, and Knifey has been happy to bypass as much security as possible. I've been helped by relieving suckers of their locked containers, found by picking their pockets, and unlocking them to raise my skill level. But there are only so many pockets to pick and locked containers to find, so […]

Knifey's Ram Ready

Sunday, May 18th, 2008

Knifey has been trying to get exalted with Ironforge so he can get a swift riding ram. This is to replace his horse, for which he had to get exalted with Stormwind, because the swift horses aren't as appealing. All this so I don't have to ride a mechanostrider. I had run through all the […]
